Last week (yes, thanks so much for all the notice!), Sam's teacher sent home a note asking them to bring a project made up of 100 items to celebrate the 100th day of school. Now I know that the hundredth day of school is a big deal in The States but it basically goes unnoticed here. Except for last week...
So at first Sam decided he want to build a structure out of 100 pieces of Lego. Easy and done!
Then he changed his mind. Gah.
Then he wanted to glue 100 chocolate chips to a piece of paper for "dirt" and draw a worm. I'm still not convinced he didn't get this idea from someone else. Also, I didn't like the idea of wasting food, and we couldn't figure out how to glue the chocolate chips to the paper. I didn't think white glue would hold them and if I used my glue gun, we'd basically have chocolate fondue -- with glue mixed in. Awesome.
Then Sam decided he wanted to do something with baseball cards, Dave remembered this pin, we made a baseball diamond out of cardboard, and volia! The most epic 100 days of school project was complete.
